OK ;).  BTW, I was wrong in many ways in my initial post about how to make peeps watch ride effects.  I have totally rewritten the tutorial linked above.

Hey there SGW Community

We have another update of my City Park (damn i still need a good name for this park). We finally have the right colors for our new Wingcoaster "Black Eagle" i think the new color fits perfect for the coaster and the surroundings.






So i think the Coaster is now finished for around 80%. It still needs some work on the surrounding area, and of course it needs a Sign at the entrance of the Coaster. But we can still work the next attraction out in my mind. ( i know what it will be).

So here is another great shot of my Wingcoaster "Black Eagle" i really hope you like it!

I'm looking forward to riding that coaster!

I definitely like the red paint on the coaster better than the original blue.  The red fits the surrounding landscape much better.  But it fits so well that it's almost camouflaged now, and a bit hard to see.  I therefore suggest leaving the main track red like it is, but changing the color of some of the track detail parts or supports to something with a slightly more contrast with the background terrain.  This will then have the effect of making the pretty red of the track more visible.

I like the red too, because it distinguishes it more from the woodie you built earlier.  And I still love looking at the coaster layout... so jealous of that!

Hey all

Iam back with another Update. And sry no its not the POV of Black Eagle but its a new ride in the new section. I alwayse wantet to have a Water COaster in this section, bechause the theming i already got in my head. so here is the basic lauyout (i chanched it just a bit after this screenshot:



As you can see i want that the track and the queline interacts with each other. different elevations and some drops where the people from the path can have a look at.



After the pathworks and the track work was done, i started with the terrain. and man that alwayse is hard and long work. but i think till now it looks quit nice.



and a shot from the top spot on this ride:



i still love my black eagle so much i definittly thinks its the best coaster if ever made :D
and here for the finsih, a total view of the whole layout. still much much work to do. all the rocks needed to be placed, and yeah of course the whole loads of details :)



i hope you like what you see. and i promise, as soon as iam finished with this park section there will be some povs and cinematic views.

Hey all here is another Update of the Western Section. The riverraft gets its surrounding. "some" stones where placed and bushes. I think it looks good so far:



Also there is a new Flatride also in this section. i needed a "small" one because there is not that much space left. So i choosed the hellion ring, i think he fits perfect :)



the colors are not final but i like em so far.



here you see a special view when your right at the entrance of the riverraft. you here can see the biggest drop. also you can see a bit of black eagle :)



View from the visitor deck leftsided of the food court yard. uphere i will place some picnic tables. and you also have a great view of the second Steamhorse made by Wings n Strings! Damn i love thos Locomotivs so much!



So this was it for this update. hope you like what you see. see ya next time!

Very nice!  The scenery has an understated elegance, just right, not overpowering ;)

This just keeps getting better and better! Love the way the hellion ring sits in the rockery from the river rapids.

I like the way the raft is nicely integrated in the park. The layout of your wing is nice too, even if I think you should rework the supports of some part (the inversions especially)

thnx for your kind words. the supports are all normal standard :) so no custom supports.

I love the sightline of the top of the raft drop to the coaster in the background.  That worked out well.

Hey there forum gang :P

Here is another update of the section. and maybe its the last one (of this section) but we will see. So the Raft is finished around 85% sign and name is missing:







Also all the shops gets them surroundings and more details where added. Damn i love this wings n strings steamtrains xD



And last but not least here is a overview of the whole area. i think the whole area is now finished around 90% some details and fences are missing but they will be added later.

Just absolutely amazing terraforming on the raft ride, Jay. The only criticism I might have is that there might be too much contrast between the red rocks and plain ground between them. A couple ways you might make things look better is to add more foliage to hide the starkness between the rocks. Another might be to add some red rock texture to the terraforming. You would need to swap a ground texture you're not using for the red rock texture. Then "color" small areas around the rocks, and blend the red rock texture with the plain ground texture so it flows better.

Now, I'm basing these ideas on how the ride looks from an aerial view. It may look better from the ground view and maybe it's just fine the way it is. But these were just a couple of ideas that I might try myself, if I was building this.

Very nice!

I was thinking similarly to ShyGuy, though, about the contrast between the red rocks and surrounding ground.  I was thinking maybe add some of those dry-looking creosote bushes.  They do a nice job of blending 1 to the other and are also appropriate to the biome.

WOW Jay, it's so good to see that you've kept this park going. And I think it's the best work you've done so far. I love the interaction with the ground, path and surrounding attractions of the Wingrider and the new colour improves it so much.
And I totally agree with Shy about the terraforming on the rapids. It's fantastic.  And he beat me to it saying about using the terrain paint tool to blend the red scenery rocks into the ground.
On the whole, it's looking great so far. :)

Hey there sgw friends. another update incoming :)

so first about the texture story:



i changed one so i got this red one. i think it fits well :)
Then after the Western section is nearly finished, we need new land. so i got another section for the park. this time, on the left side near the parkinglot.



and yes as you can see, sadly the "darkride" has been removed. it doesent fit there anymore, because the new paths are going trough there. but it will come back in another section i think. So whats next? Well i just show you a picture and maybe you can find out what kind of section the next one will be:



i hope you like it. and cya in another update :)

The blending of textures really helped.  It looks way more natural and realistic now.

I look forward to what seems like it's going to be an alpine area :)
